Technological advances in 3D printing will bring new opportunities to many industries, including, medical, engineering, automotive, aerospace and general manufacturing. These advances are also an exciting development for makers, DIY enthusiasts, hobbyists and STEM educators.
We are excited that DLM-TIC gives the Orange County Library System the opportunity make this new technology available to our community. We recently began the process by meeting with a 3D printing vendor and understanding FDM®. Our team plans to thoroughly investigate various 3D printers and printing methodologies and to choose the most suitable model for our community.
